ok, I use my Sharp 70" to watch cable, DVD, and video from various sources via Roku. I bought this with the notion that I would get a variety of background colors no matter what I was watching. Silly me I guess. I already have a solid blue led background. What will this do for me? can I get varying colors from anything?
Admitted, there's quite a lot of blue in that video, but DreamScreen's video mode will work with any combination of colors that is displayed on your TV. If one edge/border of the screen is showing a reddish color, then the LEDs there will light up in a similar reddish color. If another edge/side of the screen is green, the LEDs will show green... or any other color combination, for that matter. I don't know exactly how you have all your devices connected, but as long as your cable / DVD / Roku signals all (eg through a HDMI splitter or through a Receiver) come into the DreamScreen's HDMI input, this should work for your set of devices too.
str8aro, it sounds like your DreamScreen is in Ambient Mode? Switch to Video Mode for the LEDs to respond to the content displayed on the TV (the status LED on the stick should be purple). Also Freddy is correct, your HDMI source must be plugged into the Splitter along with DreamScreen. If you have any more comments or concerns, feel free to create an account and pm me
